Marine Benthic Fauna of Chilean Patagonia provides introductions to each taxonomic group with background information on morphology, biology, examination and identification methods, and an overview on the current level of knowledge. Lists of all species described for the region are provided as well as detailed instructions on the proper sampling and preservation techniques.
The most relevant features for reliable identification of 473 selected macrobenthic species from 13 phyla are described in detail and accompanied by identification keys, microscope illustrations, drawings and photos of outstanding quality that almost exclusively show actual examined specimens. The species descriptions are complete with information on biology, abundance, distribution, similar and easily confused species and relevant literature. The well thought-out telegraphic style makes the species descriptions unambiguous, quick to comprehend and together with the keys and illustrations results in unbeatably fast and reliable identifications.
